Participatory (and free!) singing for all ages!
Shape note singing is a powerful, a capella singing: joyful, deeply moving and spiritual. Using a form of musical notation developed in New England around 1800, singers first sing through the notes using their syllable names. The songs are beautiful and just plain fun to sing. Listeners, beginners, and people of all ages invited. No musical experience necessary! Music books will be available to borrow. Potluck snack will be shared.
